The Sure Path to Self-Realization

posted by Guy Finley

There is no greater, more reliable teacher of true self-knowledge than intentional patience and, when married to a willingness to observe oneself through the stillness and sacrifice that such patience demands, there exists no swifter, more sure path to self-realization…boy, window, moon

Guy Finley explains that you live in an entire galaxy of forces which ceaselessly act upon you, and it’s only your awareness of these energies that allows you to use them for your benefit rather than be unconsciously dominated by them.

Enter The Narrow Gate

posted by Guy Finley

You may not see it unfolding, but here’s what happens the moment you take your eye off of seeing the whole of yourself:

Some unseen part of yourself takes one step closer to falling into the pit of some pain created by its unanswered unconscious demand on life. To know this as inevitable creates the impetus for a holy new wish in life, based upon a whole new set of values; such self-knowledge is the seed of inner vigilance; it is the heart of mindfulness, the soul of successful self-observation.

This higher understanding, and the acceptance of its truth, is the secret path of self-denial, the narrow gate that only an awakened need for God’s mercy can open.

See Yourself in a Whole New Way

The new inner vision that comes from self-observation is what provides you with true self-knowledge. To see yourself in this new way means that at the same moment of being aware of your physical self, you are also watching what you are thinking and feeling without involving your old inclinations to jump in and judge. Simply stated, self-observation is a way of being fully aware of yourself while remaining free from any self-concern. In this unique psychological posture you remain effortlessly apart from all wrong concerns because, should any of them arise, they are treated as just something else you are seeing, not as something you are.

At first, this idea of expanded self-awareness may sound to you like a little too much going on all at once. I assure you that it is not. Once you get the feel for it, self-observation is not any more difficult than leisurely watching a juggler under the Big Top. He may have as many as six or seven assorted objects flipping and spinning all at once, but that is of no concern to you. Seeing takes no effort. You are just enjoying the performance!
